Yes, it seems to me that the Israeli incursion, isn't going to be any more effective against terror than putting some antibiotic ointment on serious gangrene.
The Israeli Government, my government, hasn't planned a war to rid the area of terrorism and guarantee us peace. It just wants to "reduce" the inconvenience and embarrassment of having the Minister of Defense's Sderot neighborhood blitzed by Arab weapons.
The little "incursion" won't make a dent on an Arab society that values sacrifice, even if it's of young children. The Arab leaders are preparing their people for more "martyrs."
Tonight on the TV news, they kept showing us where the Kassam landed in Ashkelon. It was next to a school. As you can see in the picture from the Jerusalem Post, everyone looks confused, not very comforting for a public which is losing faith in its government and defense forces.
Now that the Arabs solved some technical problems, they promise more.
Hamas' military wing, Izzadin al-Kassam, claimed responsibility for the
attack while claiming that the rocket had been upgraded to achieve a range of
over 15 kilometers.
That G-d forbid gives them the ability to reach a large portion of the country.
And the Shalit family is still in a hell that a number of Israeli families have never left. Not all Israeli soldiers have been rescued after capture by Arab forces.
"A bissel ointment on the gangrene" is a pretty mild title, once you think about it.
